Mazda is known for its incredible performance, upscale design and, of course, its innovative safety technology. The best of Mazda’s advanced safety technology can be found in the i-ACTIVSENSE safety package (available across the Mazda lineup). But what are some of the best features included and how do they work? Keep reading to learn more about Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE safety technology!
How Do The i-ACTIVSENSE Advanced Safety Features Work?
- Adaptive Front-lighting System illuminates a greater distance and changes depending on vehicle speed and other driving factors, pointing the headlights in the direction the driver is traveling towards.
- Smart City Brake Support uses a sensor on the front of the windshield that detects potential hazards in front of the vehicle. When traveling at low speeds, the system is able to add power to the brakes, and in the event the driver takes no action to try to avoid the collision, the system will automatically apply the brakes and reduce engine power.
- Blind Spot Monitoring uses radars to detect vehicles that may be in your vehicle’s blind spot. If the driver tries to change lanes and there is a vehicle detected in the blind spot, the system will alert the driver.
- High-Beam Control switches between high and low beams based on oncoming and preceding traffic.
- Acceleration Control stops sudden and accidental acceleration and is able to lower engine output to avoid any sort of collision.
- Mazda Radar Cruise Control adjusts and maintains a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front by use of a millimeter wave radar. The Distance Recognition Support System displays following distance to the driver.
- Rear Vehicle Monitoring System measures the distance between your vehicle and following vehicles with a rear bumper-mounted radar that will alert the driver of potentially dangerous situations.
- Lane Departure Warning System is able to detect road markings and keeps the driver aware of their position on the road.
- Forward Obstruction Warning calculates the distance between objects and the front of the vehicle, alerting the driver of any potentially dangerous situations.
